Alex Wells – success in shades


Alex WellsA mention this week for Alex Wells (OW 2003) who (I hope!) has had the ideal summer for his firm. Alex runs Wells Umbrellas in Winchester and supplies high quality large parasols for commercial and top end private use.

Alex has come to his current business via a worldwide life experience. After Wells he studied sports science and went on to spend three years as a diving instructor in Koh Tao, Thailand. He then came home for a year to teach diving at Vobster Quay before a further year abroad in Fiji. Finally in 2012 came a complete career change that saw him join Craigie Woodworks, a bespoke kitchen company in Somerset. From there he launched his own business the following year.

At Wells Alex was a noted rugby player, joining the 1st XV at age 15 and meriting a “special well done” in the team annual report.

Long may the sun shine for Alex!
